Though I do not own any of them.
But I must say that the Civic is looking much more sophisticated (decent)
But on the other side Corolla is looking sporty.
This time Civic is for elite class while the Corolla is for youngsters.
Corolla attaracts the youngsters by giving sporty looks and some tech such as paddle shifters,
While the Civic attaracts the elite class by giving decent looks and beautiful Interior.
PS. I may be wrong, opinions differ per person!
